Makh: So it's basically a rehash of this site. And others before it. But mostly this word for word. http://didyouknowblog.com/
bdub77: I read that as 'Plug your nose and try to cum'.
Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: I must admit I got lightheaded while plugging my nose and trying to hum the theme from I Dream Of Jeannie
scottydoesntknow: 59. One in every 5,000 babies is born with a condition known as "imperforate anus.". This means the baby is born without an anus and has to have one created manually in the hospital.
fusillade762: 62. Also, this is what Jupiter would look like if it were as close to us as the Moon isNot for very long it wouldn't.
weltallica: This was a crappy list.
fusillade762: We used to have fun with stuff like this in high school. Tell a cute girl "Did you know you can't touch your elbows behind your back" and then watch them try it.
doglover: Factoids are false. That's what the word means.
noneyourbase: 57. Mario hits blocks with his hand, not his head.57b. The bushes and the clouds in that screenshot use the same sprite. It's just recolored.
scatteredmind: scottydoesntknow: 59. One in every 5,000 babies is born with a condition known as "imperforate anus.". This means the baby is born without an anus and has to have one created manually in the hospital. Seen this while trying to debunk "hold your nose and cum" and shiat the bed.
ecmoRandomNumbers: Huh. I just did that and whistled an Eb out my ass. Is that one of the factoids?
Jim_Callahan: 66. If you dug a hole to the center of the Earth and dropped a book down, it would take 42 minutes to reach the bottom.Only if you installed a vacuum tube in that hole (the real world has air resistance) and also no, it would be 21 minutes. 84 minutes is the period of the harmonic oscillator associated with gravity on Earth-diameters, so to reach the center of the planet you need to cut that to 1/4, not 1/2. 42 minutes would get you to the other side, which means you need a second hole lined up with the first.// NEEEEEEERDS
Active introvert: Ok, maybe I'm just moving slow this morning but could someone explain the whole folding the paper 42 times will reach the moon.
Some Junkie Cosmonaut: Not to be a technical prong - he said being both technical and a prong - but it's entirely possible for just about anyone at all to hum whilst their nose is plugged. Just open your mouth. You'll need to modulate a bit more with your throat than usual, but humming it is. Look, another pointless factoid!
Hoopy Frood: No, if you dug a hole to the center of the Earth and dropped a book down, it would never reach the bottom. A book would burst into flames due to the heat from Earth's core, and the ashes that remain would gently float towards the center, probably with very little oscillation.
